Dog car safety is something that few owners consider, yet the consequences of not restraining a pet can be lethal. Many of the injuries sustained that result in debilitation or life-threatening trauma can be prevented. Dogs that are harnessed or restrained in a car seat are much less likely to be hurt in the event of an accident.
Below is a list of some commonly seen injuries to dogs that survive a car accident:
A dog loose in a vehicle can also contribute to the cause of an accident. While certainly a consideration, the risk of the driver taking their eyes off the road is only one concern. Another factor is the pet interfering with the operation of the vehicle. Small dogs and cats are able to wedge themselves under the driver’s legs. Larger dogs can move into the driver’s field of vision, obstructing their view.
Unfortunately, car accidents are bound to happen. The most important factor in minimizing serious injury is to pay attention to dog car safety. Modern society recognizes this need for children by implementing stringent laws, but somehow pets have been left out.
Preventative measures involve implementing sound dog car safety rules. Dogs should be protected whenever riding inside of a vehicle. Car Harnesses are an ideal solution for securing furry passengers. These usually feature a padded vest to prevent it from rubbing on the skin.
Car harnesses position the d-ring low on the back and should be tethered to your car's seat belt. In the event of an accident, the force of the restraint is distributed evenly across the body. This type of harness also works well when used in combination with a specially designed car seat. Regardless of the style, it is an essential piece of safety equipment for those who love to take their dog along for the ride.
I purchased this for a 5 lb princess who couldn't stay off my expensive faux fur throw. She loved it as did my 13 lb Pom boy who normally avoids blankets as he would get too hot. Definitely a favorite! Good thing I bought two. Very high quality and appearance.
Sophie loves the plush blanket in her crate. It's the perfect size and so soft!
My little chihuahua loves to snuggle in this blanket. It is very soft and well-made.
My little Halo loves getting into her carrier now, thanks to this extra soft blanket.
I first bought this harness when I got my Papillon many years ago and and have never put any other kind on them. They are strong but soft and do not cut coat. They are easy to wash. I highly recommend them for any small dog. And the service from GW Little cannot be beat.
I purchased the large blanket for my sister's new rescue dog who is almost ten pounds. She is delighted with the softness and how she can stretch out and cuddle up in it. My dog has a smaller one with the same furry texture. It is her favorite blanket, too, because it's like being curled up next to another fluffy dog. Wonderful product.
My Maltese and I love this blanket. She's wrapped up in it now. Soft, cuddly, perfect!
Purchased this little blankie for 20 month old morkie Jax booster seat. Those winter mornings in car are a bit more comfy with the ultra softness of this blankie. Jax and momma love it!!!!
